Los Feliz 3 | ‘BLEAK WEEK: Cinema of Despair’ Series
Home / Now Showing / LOS OLVIDADOS
Having directed only a handful of for-hire Mexican films in the multiple-decade interim since L’AGE D’OR and LAND WITHOUT BREAD, Spanish refugee Luis Buñuel’s 1950 return to iconoclastic form is this razor-sharp, no-holds-barred docudrama. Teenage delinquent Jaibo (Roberto Cobo), fresh out of a reformatory stint, returns to the savage streets of Mexico City to head up a gang of undesirables who beat up beggars, snatch purses and loiter. But Jaibo has an insatiable itch in violent need of scratching – to settle the score with the stool pigeon who put him away.
